While helping my client get her house ready to sell, I’ve been looking through her furniture and decor for items to use for staging. She had this old stool that had seen a lot of wear and tear. I asked her if I could paint it and use it to bring some color into her master bathroom.
She agreed to let me take it home, and soon we had a Chalk Painted Wooden Stool to use for staging!

Lightly sand the stool to remove any dirt and rough spots. This gives the wood a bit of a tooth for the paint to grip to.
Use any chalk-like paint to paint your stool (I used Farmhouse Paint in Dijon.) Brush the paint on with the grain. Start from the bottom first.
Flip the stool over to paint the top and outside legs.
Let the stool dry completely.
When the paint is dry, use the palm sander to distress the stool.
Brush on furniture wax to seal the stool and wipe off any excess with a clean rag.
And you are finished!
Enjoy a beautiful colorful Chalk Painted Wooden Stool.
